Addison Godwin is a Non-Glam—one of the one in ten thousand humans who is immune to vampire glamour and mind tricks. Her gift enables her to work as an Auditor, enforcing the law that vampires and humans keep their distance from each other except in a purely non-physical way. The law is necessary because when a vampire tries to have sex with a human their blood-lust combines with their sexual appetite and the result looks like road kill.
Alec Corbin is a Four Star Master Vampire with piercing blue eyes and intentions to get Addison into his bed. He promises he can be gentle but Addison has seen way too many vamp/human crime scenes to go for that. She has no interest in the six foot four hunk of sexy vampire man candy, even if he is supernaturally hot.
But just because she Audits (and sometimes executes) vampires for a living, doesn't mean she hates them all. Her best friend, Taylor, was turned against her will. Now, living as a slave to one of the crueler Master vamps in town, she leads a miserable existence and Addison helpless to save her within the confines of the law.
Things come to a head when the Vampire Inquisitor comes to town and Taylor is given to him as a sex slave. When Addison sees her best friend tortured, beaten, and burned with silver she knows she has to do something—even if it means teaming up with Corbin and paying the Crimson Debt.
I loved this book!
Crimson Debt is a definite page turner! The storyline pulls you in immediately and the characters keep you reading. This is one of the better written erotic pnr books I've read. A lot of the books seem to focus on the steamy scenes and the story is left severely lacking, but there was a nice balance of story and steam in this one! It flowed nicely and I quickly found myself engrossed in the characters, wanting to know what was going to happen... I couldn't put it down.
Corbin is HOT, and I love that he is a perfect mix of cocky and sweet. Most of the time the old vampires tend to be cocky bastards, as Celeste and Roderick were, but Corbin was great. Maybe a little too sweet at times, but I loved him.
I'm not usually a fan of series that feature a different character in each book, but I'm interested in reading Taylor and Victor's story. Crimson Debt could be read as a standalone, there is no cliff hanger, Corbin and Addison's story comes to an end and it hints at Taylor and Victor's story.
